I couldn't sleep last night. I started doodling late in the evening and before I knew it, hours had passed and I had Quiz Call in the background as a soundtrack. Viewers who called in were charged £1, whether or not their call was selected. They had to find a word to put before 'ball', with the chance of winnning up to £1000. The way they pulled those callers in was genius. I didn't make a call, of course, I just doodled, and the above is the result.

The pictures could be clearer, but I hope you get the idea (click). I used graphics pens ( .10, .50, .35), a brush pen, 0.5 pencil, and blue and yellow coloured pencils. It's the first time I have documented a piece if work in stages. The banner is in Italian and it says, "Mi sento compiuto e completo in cio che", which translates as, "I feel full, complete and whole in who I am".

The sun is shining. Great!
I took this picture whilst walking to Kilburn High Road last week (23.05.09). The yellow shoes just sat there on the wall. They seemed to have found an honest accompaniment in the familiar yet dulcet tones of the English ivy. If the shoes and the ivy merged, they would give birth to Shivy, with a curious chartreuse glow.
